He added that the Ministry of Culture has listened to and been in dialogue with the cultural sector on a daily basis, adding that it has been a difficult week for a number of cultural actors across the country.

“I will not give explanations, but the pandemic makes most things unpredictable. No one could predict what spring would be like. No one could predict the direction the infection situation would take,” Raja said.
